The CEHS 2014 poster winners
Cash prizes were awarded to graduate students and postdoc scholars for best poster presentations. For both categories, the prize for first place was $1,000, the second-place prize was $500, and the third-place prize was $200 and CEHS memorabilia. The cash prizes were made possible by the Myriam Marcelle Znaty Research Fund, which was established nearly 30 years ago to support the research of young scientists at MIT.
In second place was Christina Birch, a student in the lab of Jacquin Niles, an associate professor biological engineering, who presented, “RNA Aptamers for Studying Pregnancy-Associated Malaria.”
